Socialite, actress, and former beauty queen Zsa Zsa Gabor died today in Los Angeles. She was 99.

Gabor reportedly suffered from a heart attack and was rushed to the hospital before being pronounced dead. After being hospitalized for a fall in 2010, Gabor was in and out of the hospital for illnesses related to her hip replacement surgery.



In her time, Gabor was considered a sex icon and a witty celebrity personality. She often graced the papers with stories about her illustrious series of marriages or run-ins with Beverley Hills cops.

"She did not suffer fools well," her manager Lozzi said in a statement. "Zsa Zsa Gabor was one tough cookie. Her beautiful lips and mouth would also be her worst enemy when and if she turned on the verbal machine gun. Most of her problems originated from that beautiful mouth.

"Zsa Zsa Gabor will always be an American icon and the klieg in the Gabor-Hilton dynasty."
